    Michael nailed both of my tracks first time...which was no mean feat with the 'challenging' material. He managed to find extra space and depth in the music which I didn't know was there.

    Prompt delivery and good communications as well. Will be coming back.

    It's been great to work with Michael! He had very clear in mind what he was looking for (which made the whole process really easy) but also trusted my creative inputs. Very good at communicating and punctual in his feedback, I'd definitely work with him again in the future.

    Had another amazing experience with Michael engineering my track! He mixed an electro-pop song and did such a wonderful job with the vocals. He is really great to work with and is able to translate certain visions I had for the track with the mix. So excited for the finished product. Can't wait to be back again!

    I had Michael do full production on one of my album tracks. I basically just sent him my demo and a couple YouTube videos to let him know how I wanted his version to sound, and he NAILED IT. I liked the track before, but now that he has worked wonders with it, it is one of my favorites from the album. Thanks, Michael!

    Michael was so amazing to work with. He helped mix and master a melodic house track. The finished product is FANTASTIC. He really helped bring the track to life and with so many instruments playing together helped give them all room to breathe and flow. Great at communication, extremely professional and talented.

    I came to Michael with the basic pieces of a dance track I wanted him to help improve, mix and master. Michael was the perfect person for this project. He's incredibly talented from both a creative and sound engineering perspective. He really took my music to the next level. He's also just a great guy and you will have a good time working with him. I will 100% work with Michael again and highly recommend him to any producer looking to really professionalize their music.

    Im in this business for 10 years now, worked with a lot of mixing engineers but nothing like Michael...
    Always responsive, always willing to change, and explain things...
    Quick turnarounds.

Interview with Michael Badal

  1. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  2. A: For clients, the most common type of work I perform is in the form of mixing, mastering, and remixing. I also produce music for myself and other artists as well.

  3. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  4. A: I run Logic Pro X primarily, but also have Pro Tools running in the studio. For mixing and mastering, I have Focal Shape Twin and Avantone Mix Cube monitors, a Dangerous Music 2-BUS+, an array of UAD-2 and Waves plugins, a MOTU 896mk3 interface, and a TC Electronic Clarity M for metering.

  5. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  6. A: I work on anything from Dance music to Classical to Pop to Rock to Hip Hop and everything in between. I don't discriminate on style and genre. My clients come from all kinds of musical walks and I embrace it as it keeps my job very interesting.

  7. Q: What do you like most about your job?

  8. A: I love bringing my client's project to a close for them. I get to see them finally listen to their project in its finished state after months of them producing and recording their pieces of art. And for them to trust me with the final mix and master of their project is an honor I don't take lightly.

  9. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  10. A: It's different strokes for different folks. it's really a matter of taste. I personally love the sound of analog, but it's not always needed or even wanted depending on the project. My studio is capable of analog summing and can provide my clients with a hybrid mix where their songs are mixed in the DAW, but are summed out through my analog gear and brought back in for the final render.
